While doing background research for my Victorian crime novels, I came across several articles discussing Sherlock Holmes potentially being asexual. As per definition, an asexual is a person who does not experience sexual attraction.
Today I had a long discussion with David Jay, founder of the Asexuality Network (www.asexuality.org) on asexuality, Sherlock Holmes and his relationship with Watson, his view of Victorian women, as well as the great difference in perception of sexuality between the Victorian era and today. To say that my horizon got broadened, would be an understatement.
But I would like to know what avid readers and Sherlock Holmes fans think about that.
Could Sherlock Holmes be described as asexual or not?
